Wish we could lie to you and say that we have two great games ahead of Ohio State's tipoff, but North Carolina and Kansas couldn't have asked for better Sweet 16 matchups. Oh well, nothing like starting the night off right by rooting for the underdog (unless you're pulling for the Blue Blood Path of Hell for the Buckeyes to cement themselves as one of the all-time great teams).

All games are provided below, but we'll be cutting away from this open thread for a live blog around 9:30ish.

Well, these are already snoozers. The wait until 9:45 will be even longer now.

This will give me a chance to get caught up on some reading before tOSU game.

Did Chuck really just say that Kentucky has more depth than OSU? That OSU only plays 7 guys... Look at Kentucky's stats - they only play 6 guys, dumbass!

After we beat KY like a rented mule - what will the talking heads find to criticize next?

Haven't heard too many negatives from the heads lately. Jim Rome loves us.
